Isprovocirala je svet pitanjem "Koji je vaš izgovor": Evo kako danas izgleda mama 3 sina
Sigurno se svi sećate fitnes-mame Marije Kang koja je 2013. godine bila tema broj jedan svetskih medija zbog fotografije koju je objavila na društvenim mrežama i kritikovala mame koje se ne bave fizičkom aktivnošću.Sudbine | Super žena |
Naime, Marija je kraj fotke na kojoj pozira sa svojih troje dece ponosno pokazujući svoju zategnutu liniju poručila svim ženama koje ne vežbaju: „Koji je vaš izgovor?“
Mnogi su osudili ovaj njen post jer je Marija na taj način još više izvršila pritisak na novopečene mame da moraju odmah da izgledaju savršeno.
Ipak, danas Marija ne krije da se njeno telo promenilo nakon rođenja tri sina i poručuje svojim pratiocima da je je ona i dalje ona ista žena koju su počeli da prate pre mnogo godina samo sa malim promenama na telu.
„Ukoliko ste se pitali da li je ova žena sa viškom kože i strijama prava Marija Kang koju ste počeli da pratite pre mnogo godina, ne brinite, to jesam ja“, našalila se ona kraj fotografije.
Marija i dalje vežba i održava fit liniju, ali ne krije da su se stvari promenile posle dece.
I dalje vežba 5 do 6 puta nedeljno, ali se ne opterećuje kao ranije. Najvažnije joj je što se oseća dobro u svom telu, svaki dan jede čokoladu i ima cikluse na 28 dana. Kao neko ko je imao poremećaj u ishrani za Mariju je ovo znak da je zdrava, a to joj je danas najvažnije.
Years ago I admitted ONE OF MY GREATEST FEARS WAS BECOMING A MOTHER. I was nervous I wouldn’t have a balanced work/home life. I was worried I would not be able to keep up with single colleagues. I was fearful my body would forever change and I’d come to a point – that I wouldn’t care about my health anymore. I’m thankful for the early years of social media because when I finally did get pregnant in 2008, I already witnessed people from afar, have healthy pregnancies and fit bodies afterwards. I saw women who were mothers and successful CEOs. I watched women have unconventional marriages with very supportive husbands. Seeing others succeed, helped me believe that I too, could succeed. It’s been admittedly hard these last several years, after all, I do compare myself to people who have all the time to focus on their careers, travel and enjoy romantic holidays with their spouses. I do feel like my extra fat cells during pregnancy want to inflate again every holiday season. I do experience mom guilt when I travel for work or when I yell out of stress, fatigue or annoyance. But that’s ok. Despite my criticisms of being a publicly ‘fit mom’ – I hope living my life out loud helps other women force out their fears and desire their deepest dreams. I am thankful for all the women, in the No Excuse Mom Community and throughout the decades, who have lived their lives out loud. Thankful for the people who showed that you can find balance, time and energy. You can be a fit mom, a working woman and a devoted wife. You can stand tall without making others feel short. When you stand, we stand. If you can, WE CAN. Our 2019 12-Week Accountability Calendar is dedicated to all the Fit Moms Throughout The Decades. It comes with 12 weeks of inspiration, motivational quotes and weekly workouts. You can grab yours on our site or in my bio link. #noexcusemom Image by @mikebyerlyphoto taken in 2012
This is ((almost)) the same expression I had when I was 'verified' on Instagram yesterday. I noticed the little blue check mark while typing in comments, lol. I inquired about getting verified a month ago and was told by several sources that it would cost $2500. Now, if you've been following me for a longtime you know that I'm frugal. I also don't pay a lot into my social media. So I did my research, went the normal route and simply requested verification and supplied my ID. and Voila! ✨ The day I wrote a post about not seeking validation online, is the same day I get validated. LOL. I am sharing this funny story for a few reasons. 1) In case you were nervous that this woman with excess skin and stretchmarks is the original "Maria Kang" you started following years ago, have no fear - I am HERE and yes, this is me. 2) God works in mysterious ways. 3) Don't take life too seriously. My beauty will fade. My fitness level will decline. Social media is not the end all, be all. But, while we ARE here, thanks for following. BTW - I will be going LIVE tomorrow on FB at 1pm PST talking ALL ABOUT KETO with my girl @sassfitness. Hope to see you then! #verified #noexcusemom #bodypositivity . .

Damn. I stared confused, annoyed and speechless while staring at my #DexaScan results, a machine that calculates bone density, muscle mass and body fat. In the past, I measured my body composition via skin calipers and hydrostatic underwater weighing. In both tests, I always measured between 22-24% body fat, an athletic range for a female. However, in this most recent weigh-in I clocked in at 28% body fat – a percentage that is considered normal or average. I really shouldn’t be disappointed with my results, but I was. I train intensely 5-6 times a week. As someone who has struggled with disordered eating, I can proudly attest I rarely over splurge – and if I do, I don’t go at it for multiple days as I have done in the past. Outside of my years struggling with binge eating and being pregnant for three years, my set point weight and clothing size hasn’t changed much since college. I am for the most part, comfortable in my body. I enjoy chocolate daily, wine weekly and have a consistent 28-day menstrual cycle. I am healthy. I felt, however, that with the physical effort I put in daily, I would measure leaner when testing my body composition. I thought the early morning hours exercising, the muscle definition in my back and abs or the countless times I ordered salad at restaurants would equate to a more athletic result. Alas, I sat, stunned – feeling the duality of not working hard enough, but also knowing I work damn hard. I remember years ago defending myself as a ‘fit mom’ to online critics, especially those who claimed I had superior genetics. At the time I explained I was a normal person, of a healthy weight, who gained the recommended pounds while pregnant and slowly lost it within 9mths after giving birth. Since most people are overweight/obese, the average body fat for most women is 35%+ and seeing (at the time), a non-celebrity achieve a healthy body post-multiple-babies-so-close-together was not ‘normal’. What people didn’t see was how much being healthy wasn’t natural for me. I always had to work harder than the people around me to maintain a healthy body. I didn’t grow up with sports and my body type appeared closely...⬇️⬇️⬇️
What are your laundry secrets? Do you fold immediately out of the dryer? Do you pin your socks together? Are your kids responsible for their own stuff? HELP ME! 😩 It’s Day 15 of our #nemplanksgiving challenge and it calls for planking while performing laundry 😂 My kids are stuck at home because the air quality is extremely poor in Sacramento due to the wild 🔥 🔥 and I’m also prepping for an early Thanksgiving with my husband’s family! #noexcusemom
